Steel packaging is used by industry in general and is important for the conservation and transportation of food, chemicals, agricultural, paint, cooking and industrial gases. Especially in relation to food, steel avoids contamination, ensuring its quality. In addition, it is 100% recyclable.

ENERGY

Steel is used in hydroelectric, thermoelectric and nuclear power plants, transmission towers, transformers, power cables, platforms, pipelines, oil prospecting and extraction equipment, as well as coal mine drilling rigs, crawlers and buckets. It is therefore fundamental in the production and distribution of energy in the country.

AGRICULTURE

The efficiency of the agricultural sector is directly linked to steel consumption. The land is plowed, sown and fenced using steel-bearing equipment. At harvest time, with the harvesters, as well as storage in silos and bulk carriers, steel is also present, allowing food to reach the market.
